If anything, this BIF got great responses.
My boxes are out. Or at least sitting in a FedEx Kinko's until they put them on a truck.
I'm going to be a little sad when this is all over, though. When's the reunion?
Another BIF, different style of beer perhaps?
much as an ipa one would be fun it'd be hard to deliver the loads since the freshest of the fresh is where its at...
maybe next year? i'll be posted up in MN for some surlybombing
A locals only BIF?
I'm down for another.
I've done those before, and they are amazing. I'd totally jump on another. Especially if I get a sender from, I don't know, Wisconsin or the suburbs south of Chicago...
this once my wallet has a bit to recover... this one took a frickin bite out of my normal me stuff budget...
I hope it's recovered enough to make it through this week with raspberry truffle abduction hitting ... is it still truck chasing when they deliver in a hatchback?
its creepervan chasing.... and bobbys drivin
Right, I forgot they upgraded their wheels! More capacity is good.
also im running my creeper stash right now since i lost a bet... so i'll be extra pro at chasing the van
I was gonna say jake you've seen it but then remembered you weren't at stout fest
Only John has had that honor? I suppose ...to see this sucker.
I hate losing bets....
And jake so your not to sad goose clybourn just tapped d-day one of their brews from stout fest very good!
Let me know if/when the packages are delivered. Scheduled delivery for today, but after "Destination scan" over weekend, status hasn't been updated. Hope they didn't get intercepted!
I saw that ... pear and coffee stout, right? That sounds awesome. Going to see if I can swing by there sometime soon.
i highly recommend it, it was good although london fog was a bit better in my bleary state of mind... i'd be curious to try the two of them side by side with a less fuzzy mind.
What a great birthday present
Had a bomb dropped in my driveway!!! What a packing job..holy shit, it was like trying to break into Fort Knox. Thank you very much I'm blown away and yes I agree bourbon makes everything better. I'm looking forward to trying the Dark Intrigue.
pics to follow
Also got a pint glass from Appalachian Brewing Company (sorry no photo) put it right into the dishwasher since it was ready to be run
Thanks again jbdpsu82! Really looking forward to trying these. Is the KBS a 2012? I could not find a date code
I drank one of the Troegs Scratch Beer 83 Impending Descent. It went great with dinner
Actually the KBS is a 2011. Hope you enjoy the beer. I know you get Troegs there, and that's the primary local brewery for me. Did what I could!
The Big Gruesome. Man i gotta try that. and KBS one day. Awesome box.
Damn yeah. Sweet box from the newb. Those Troegs Scratch beers are tricky to find, which sucks, because they're usually awesome.
I was at Troeg's last weekend and they didn't even have any there
They just released an Irish Red Scratch beer. They said until Nugget Nectar "season" is over they won't be focusing on many scratches.
Yea that was pretty much the focus when I was there. Nugget nectar as fresh as you can get it was amazing. I saw one of the brewers when I was there and tried to talk them into a BA version of flying mouflan. Didn't get an answer which could be good or bad...
Did you get a chance to try their barrel aged Troegenator? It was INCREDIBLE! Loved it. I was also told to be on the lookout for a Splinter release notice sooner rather than later.... Just an FYI.
Nah didn't get to try it. We got there and there was some huge party there that bought about 100 flights of beer. They decided they didn't like anything other than the pale ale so they were literally SHOVING flights down our throats. Had my fill of Javahead, Dopplebock, Nugget Nectar and a few others for free. Pretty awesome day.
I love working down the street from it. Any time they announce something that sounds good I can run right over on lunch and partake before the crowds.
How do I post a pic from my phone?
Down load photobucket and upload pics from there. Click the photo you want to use, then hit the info button, you should be able to use the IMG link given there to post.
Boxing up today.
If you're interested in Big Gruesome, I should be able to get my hands on more. Maybe after this BIF we can work out a deal. BM me if you're interested. As for the KBS... you're on your own, haha. Only got two bottles in a recent trade, gave one to emottram. The other.... well you know
